This guide will take you though the steps need to install java games onto your Motorola V3 mobile phone. Please have your phone ready, including a cable. You will need internet connection as well.
Ok, firstly, you need Windows to recognise your phone. You can download drivers here if you haven’t got them. Make sure all the drivers are in one folder. Now you plug your phone in. Windows will say “New Hardware Found.” When it searches for drivers to install, remember to select the folder which you saved the drivers in.
Now the drivers are installed, you will need Midway. Midway is a program which connects to your phone and allows you to install games. You can download it here. Don’t open Midway yet. You will also need JADmaker, a program which converts JAR files to JAD files. Most games come in JAR files when downloaded so you need to convert them to JAD file or they won’t work. You can download JADmaker here.
You will need to find some games now. Here are several sites you may want to go to.
When you have the game, get the JAR file and just drag it into the window of the JADmaker. A new icon should appear, it has the same name as the game and the file extension should be ending in .jad.
You now need to enable Java applet loader. Download P2K tools here. Run P2K tools and plug your phone in. Click refresh and then go to “Other Features” on the left hand side. Go to the bottom of the window and click “Get.” Now click Java in a column near the left. Check “Java Applet Loader” or something similar. Click “Set” next to “Get” at the bottom. Nothing may have happened but you have enabled Java Applet Loader.
Now you will need to know which port your Phone is plugged into. Go to Device Manager (Start>Run> type devmgmt.msc). Go to “Modems.” Double click Motorola USB Modem. Click the “Advanced” tab and then click “Advanced Port Settings.” There should be a drop down menu with COM# written there. Remember the number beside COM#. Open Midway and go to settings. Find the spot where it says COM# and put in the COM# that you remembered before. Click OK. Close all windows.
If your phone is still plugged in, unplug it. On your phone, go to Java settings and select Java Applet Loader. It will say insert cable so insert the cable into your computer. Now open Midway. Click open JAD. Once the JAD file is opened, click download. Your phone should say Download or cancel. Select Download. Wait for it to complete and you have finished. You can now install games onto your Motorola V3 Phone.
